I think you will enjoy this trip. It's an awful lot of wheeling thru some spectacular scenery.

Bruce,
It looks like I'll be by myself. I have a set of 33x10.50x15 BFG AT KO's on the rig now with a set of 33x12.50x15 BFG MT's in the shed- for these passes will it make any difference which set I run?

Dave,

I'm only running 31" AT's, so either of your choices are better suited. In fact, I'll follow you so you can pull me along every time I get stuck!

Only one in my group as of right now. I'll be there Friday and Saturday night as well.

I'm still planning to attend with my family.

One question - is the plan to run the shelf road on Italian Creek? I don't want to scare the crap out of my wife quite that early on the run by taking my oversized pig up the scree route, so we are planning on running the lower route through the forest.

For the folks that can't make it out to wheel on friday Ben and I plan to run schofield and lead king on sunday. We were hoping to be closer to run that trail on sunday (like camping in gothic)

I think Bruce would run it if some people can get off to run it friday and not sunday.

Yes, we're driving the shelf road and not the muddy lower road through the trees. Actually, I don't think we have ever taken the lower road in the 6 previous years we've been running the TBP. We all need to drive the shelf road part in order to improve our driving skills. As short as the shelf part is, why not let the faint of heart walk that part of the trail? We usually drive the shelf very slowly anyway so a person afoot would probably travel faster than most of the trucks.

We plan on driving to the Dorchester from the Ouray area a few days after the Ouray trip and would be willing to wheel Scofield or whatever.

Default Italian Creek Shelf Road

When we did this run on the TBP last year, my wife was driving when we came to that point. She then opted to walk, due to her GREAT fear of being on the scary side of the shelf. She walked, and me and my (then) 5 month old daughter drove. It was pretty cool.

Hey Wes and Ben, I'll run Schofield etc. with you on Sunday. If it's okay with everybody else I don't have a problem camping someplace else Sat. night.
